Important Information and Dates

Dear Parents and Students,
Here are some important dates and information about our class and our school:
October 21st: Parent Teacher Conferences 3-6 
Attention: If you are ABSENT:

RECORDED LESSONS: If you are absent, please listen to the “recorded lesson” located in Tipton’s Microsoft Teams labeled “recorded lessons.”  I will place the recorded lesson in Teams at the end of “B” day (at the very latest).

LESSON PLANS:  will be posted for the following week every Friday afternoon.  Always listen to recorded lessons in case the lesson plans are modified.

All assignment powerpoints will be attached in the link in my webpage for you to view or review.

All handouts will be located on my website under the lesson plan tab for that week of plans.

EMAIL: Please email me when you complete all online platform assignments so that I can retrieve your grades and update them in Skyward. Be sure and tell me:

  1. the exact title of the Common Lit assignment or the exact Amplify subunits, lessons, and activity card number (example: Amplify 3.2.1) Copy and paste the assignment title from the lesson plan page and email me.
  2. The class period you are in.
  3. If it is a written assignment (like Daily Grammar Analysis), please keep it and turn it in when you return unless I give directions to place the assignment in Microsoft Teams via an assignment.
Important CMS Information:
Skyward, Clever, and Office 365 links:
Check your grades regularly through Skyward using your assigned username and password. If you need assistance with your login information, visit or call our attendance offic(ext. 23307).  Use Clever to access online platforms used in class.  You can access your Office 365 account by clicking here. The username and password are the same as your computer login at school. 
The county will not be using Kiddom for the 2021-2022 school year. Updates will be coming in August about Schoology. 
Thanks so very much for sharing your child with us!  We are honored and excited about the upcoming year together!
If I can help in any way, please don't hesitate to let me know! 
 HUGE thanks!
